New employees will be making much less.
Flair said the changes will be effective November 1 however it doesn’t seem clear if it’s been postponed or if something is brewing.
It's not really a pay cut for new hires but a pay increase even with the new wage scale due to the fact they will get paid credits that they wouldn't get paid for when we were a charter operation such as deadheads, reserve, etc.
I understand this would be frustrating for pilots and other staff, however, having two pay scales for the same position is dangerous. It divides the group and creates further problems down the road by creating a toxic work environment. We have seen this before.
Flair mgmt was making a number of mistakes early on and then a new CEO stepped in and sorted everything out, and now I would say this could be his first mistake if he lets this go to strike over the holidays. Figure it out.
Mgmt should not take advantage of staff or unions to make profits. Find a better way. Think bigger @ flair mgmt.
